You’re probably familiar with chip seals, a type of sealant that is used in many industrial applications, including those in the manufacture of the glass in your car and washing machine.
Chip seals are made of polycarbonate, a soft material that is brittle and difficult to crack.
When used properly, they are a highly effective sealant and are used in the most serious situations.
A few years ago, however, there were concerns over the health effects of the chips used in chip sealants.
As a result, the European Commission (EC) launched a research programme in order to investigate the safety of the chip sealant used in these products.
The study is called the Chip and Chip Study, and it was conducted in cooperation with a number of health bodies and academic organisations in the European Union and the United States.
At the heart of the research is a team of scientists from the universities of Bristol and Liverpool.
The scientists looked at the effects of various forms of chip sealers on the blood vessels of people using them, and they also looked at whether there was an increase in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a disease that affects one in three people in the EU.
In total, more than 1,000 people in 13 countries took part in the study.
All of the participants received the same types of sealants, which were manufactured by various manufacturers.
Most of the sealants were either “soft” or “hard” – the kind that can be used on the inside of the bottle.
“We found that there was a significant increase in type 2 diabetics who were using chip seals,” said Dr Joanna Lehner, from the University of Bristol.
“[There was] a significant rise in the incidence of diabetes in those using hard chips and soft chips.
There was also a significant reduction in the likelihood of developing diabetes.”
In total there were 2,927 participants in the research, with participants aged between 20 and 50.
Of the participants, 1,719 of them were women, with a mean age of 49 years old.
One in 10 of those who took part were male, and the average age was 47 years old, with the median age being 46 years old among those who participated.
Despite this, there was no significant difference in the types of seals that were used, or the number of participants who were diagnosed with diabetes.
However, there did appear to be a statistically significant increase (0.9 per cent) in the number who developed type 2 diabetic.
Although there were no differences in the age of participants, there appears to be an increased risk of diabetes amongst people who had previously been diagnosed with the disease, the researchers say.
What is the Chip Chip Study?
The Chip and the Chip Study is a collaboration between a number:The University of Liverpool.
This study was carried out by a team from the Universities of Bristol, Liverpool and Oxford, in partnership with the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
They were based at the University Hospital, Oxford.
Researchers used a wide range of materials to collect data on participants’ blood vessels.
Each participant was tested once, using the same type of chip.
If they developed type 1 diabetes, their blood was then analysed using a different type of test to determine whether they had diabetes.
If they did not develop diabetes, then they were followed for one year, during which time they were given different types of chip seals.
Those who developed diabetes were compared to those who did not.
Overall, the results showed a statistically significantly higher incidence of type 2 Diabetes among those with chip sealings than among those without them.
Dr Lehner said:”The findings show that people who were previously diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes were more likely to develop type 2.
It was also possible to identify individuals who were at high risk for developing type 1.
People who had been diagnosed as having type 1 should also be aware of their risk of contracting diabetes from the chip they are using.””
We need to find out how the different types have different effects on the risk for diabetes.”
The researchers say that if a person is currently taking a chip seal, the best advice they can give is to avoid it for at least a year and stop using chip sealors for at all costs.
But if a family member or friend has been diagnosed, the advice should be to avoid using chip Sealants for at at least two years.
